The impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) will be on display at SEMICON Southeast Asia, 25-27 April at SPICE in Penang. The global exhibition and conference is organised by SEMI, the global non-profit association connecting the worldwide electronics manufacturing supply chain. More than 70 industry speakers and 200 companies and 7,500 attendees will participate in SEMICON Southeast Asia. Creating new business opportunities and fostering stronger cross-regional engagement, SEMICON Southeast Asia features a tradeshow exhibition, networking events, market and technology seminars, and conferences. With tens of billions of IoT devices forecasted to be connected to the internet by 2020, the IoT is changing how people work, play, and live. The IoT connects devices to the internet and to each other - from mobile phones, washing machines, lamps, wearable devices through industrial applications on airplanes and oil rigs. Alongside IoT ubiquity, the borders between real and digital worlds are blurring with technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) becoming part of our everyday lives. The enabler for IoT and the new digital world is the vital electronic manufacturing supply chain. SEMICON Southeast Asia will gather over 300 exhibitors, the leaders in manufacturing equipment and materials for semiconductors, MEMS, sensors, LEDs, and flexible hybrid electronics. A special "World of IoT" Futura-X Showcase will highlight system innovations made from the devices of the exhibitors. System innovation exhibitors include: HTC VIVE(TM) virtual reality gaming device; ADAWARP Teleporter for controlling a real-life robotic avatar; and the first Malaysia autonomous vehicle from REKA, an indigenous innovation on converting a traditional automotive to an autonomous vehicle. According to Ng Kai Fai, president of SEMI Southeast Asia, the IoT has already seen a big shift in the interaction between humans and machines, and has brought about significant transformations in manufacturing. "At this year's SEMICON Southeast Asia (SEA), we feature a 'World of IoT: Futura-X' showcase, which will feature cutting-edge applications that are fuelling new markets for electronics and connecting the world. Companies will showcase their innovations in an early preview of technologies set to change the manufacturing landscape and consumer demand. This new showcase is validation of the output of SEMICON Southeast Asia's amazing electronics manufacturing equipment and materials exhibitors," said Ng. SEMICON Southeast Asia 2017 is the region's premier event for electronics innovation. With an expanding industry scope ranging from chip manufacturing to system-level integration, it highlights the market and technology trends driving investment and growth in all sectors across the region. The event provides new business opportunities - by reaching buyers, engineers and key decision-makers in the Southeast Asia electronics industry, including buyers from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. - Future Electronics Manufacturing Pavilion - showcasing companies in the Electronic Manufacturing Services, printed circuit board, surface mount technology and electronic design automation sectors - Failure Analysis Pavilion - featuring solutions and suppliers focused on maximising throughput, improving yield and increasing reliability in microelectronics manufacturing For more information on SEMICON Southeast Asia 2017, visit www.semiconsea.org.

RFID Journal LIVE! (PRWEB) May 09, 2017 -- Powercast Corporation, the leader in wireless power-over-distance technology for 14 years, today announced the industry’s first RFID Sensor Tags which can include multiple sensors in a single tag, and provide the industry’s longest read range of 10 meters, or 32 feet. High accuracy temperature, humidity and light sensors are now available, with more sensor types planned for the future. Tags for sensing the RFID reader’s field are also available and use an on-board LED to show field strength. Designed for industrial and manufacturing applications where it’s necessary to monitor data to ensure goods don’t fall outside of acceptable parameters, the ultrahigh frequency (UHF) RFID Sensor Tags enable environmental condition monitoring throughout the shipping journey, for example, of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals or perishable products packed with dry ice. Powercast offers two versions of its high-function RFID Sensor Tags: The RFID Sensor Tags use Powercast’s patented RF-harvesting technology where the embedded Powerharvester® receiver can generate power purely from a standard RFID reader. How it works: An RFID reader generates an electromagnetic signal, which the Tag’s NXP UCODE RFID chip captures via its receiving antenna. Powercast’s efficient, RF-to-DC converter (50-75% conversion efficiency) then transforms the signal into energy to power the microcontroller and sensors for measuring environmental conditions. The microcontroller then forwards that data over I2C to NXP’s RFID chip for storage in user memory, which the reader can then read out of memory. “We call it high-function RFID because these new passive RFID Sensor Tags have more than 10 times the operational power of standard passive RFID tags enabling advanced features and unparalleled computing power,” said Dr. Charles Greene, Powercast’s COO/CTO. The PCT100 and PCT200 can be configured with one, two or three sensors in any combination of temperature, humidity and light. The PCT100 can also be configured with an on-board LED for showing an RFID reader’s field strength and to verify that it is reading properly. Sample quantities with evaluation software are available from distributors Mouser, Arrow and Future Electronics. Large quantities will range from US$10 to $35 depending on configuration. The RFID Sensor Tags will debut at RFID Journal LIVE!, Booth #453, May 9 – 12, Phoenix, AZ. About Powercast Powercast Corporation, established in 2003, is the leading provider of RF-based wireless power technologies that provide wireless power over distance, eliminate or reduce the need for batteries, and power or charge devices without wires and connectors. The company’s IP portfolio includes 41 patents worldwide (21 in the US) and 29 pending patents covering many aspects of RF wireless power including Powercast’s highly efficient Powerharvester receiver and Powerspot® Transmitter.

Dublin, April 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Functional Materials for Future Electronics: Metals, Inorganic & Organic Compounds, Graphene, CNT" report to their offering. See how the metals aluminium, copper and silver are widely deployed, sometimes in mildly alloyed, nano, precursor, ink or other form. Understand the 12 basic compounds most widely used in the new electronics and electrics and compare them with compounds exhibiting the broadest range of appropriate electrical and optical functions for the future. Those seeking low volume, premium priced opportunities can learn of other broad opportunities. Indeed, we cover in detail all the key inorganic and organic compounds and carbon isomers. We show how the element silicon has a new and very different place beyond the silicon chip. Learn how the tailoring of a chosen, widely-applicable chemical can permit premium pricing and barriers to entry based on strong new intellectual property. We identify 37 families of new and rapidly-evolving electronic and electric device, spanning nano to very large devices. Most chemical and material companies wish to de-risk their investment by finding common formulations across this new business that has a potential of over $50 billion for them. This will reduce R&D cost and provide escape routes to sell their current formulations elsewhere if they prove unsuccessful in the first application addressed. Indeed, the biggest markets for new and reinvented electrical and electronic devices may get commoditised first or collapse suddenly, leaving the materials suppliers high and dry.
